The 1982 Wyoming Legislature provided funds to establish a water research program at the University of Wyoming. The Wyoming Water Research Center (WWRC) conducts a comprehensive, multidisciplinary water research program that specifically addresses the development, management and preservation of Wyoming's water resources. The Center is required to coordinate, conduct and sponsor water research on a state, regional and national scope; to provide numerous State agencies an applied service function; and to offer extension and graduate instruction - all in an inlerdisciplinary context. The Water Center mobilizes the best faculty expertise at the University to study the specific water resource problems of the State. Cooperative studies have been conducted with thirteen individual academic departments and one college (Law) at the University, one junior college, twelve individual state agencies, several municipalities, counties, and federal agencies.
Several current and past research projects funded by WWRC, which are not being discussed in connection with other portions of this conference, are listed below.
